Christmas is the joyful celebration that our God is a God who is
“Emanuel”, meaning “God With Us”. Beyond the Christmas Season, God will
continue to be “with us” every day. One way to help us to continue the
spirit of Christmas is to begin each day with a prayer that we will see
God present in the people and in the events we encounter that day. And
end each day by simply reflecting in whom and in what God touched our
lives that day. Filled with awe and delight in the Lord’s presence, we
share that peace with others, living lives of compassion and peace-building.
